Incredible experience

We loved staying in the Redwoods! Such a peaceful and amazing place to dwell.

There are no hookups, so come prepared! We liked our little cozy spot. The actual sites are nice and spacious, but the area you have to park your rig are TINY, so it can definitely be difficult the bigger your rig is. I had a challenging time backing in our 21 ft trailer.

But once we were settled, we had a great stay and I wish we could have stayed longer!

They also have free coffee and tea at the visitor center that we took advantage of in the morning. Nice touch!

Like No Other Campground

We stayed here when all the Redwood Nat’l/State Parks were fully booked, and I’m beyond pleased that we did! Truly fantastic, one-of-a-kind place to stay—with phenomenal hiking in old-growth groves, too!

Bathrooms were adequate, floors were often wet, but most had soap and lights, which you don’t always get. Showers coin-operated, hot and good pressure. Floors puddle a lot. You do get a whole room to yourself, though. Really nice dish station with two big utility tubs and hot and cold water in our area of the campground. Wood available at check-in station.

Site fairly clean, but several old tent stakes lying about. Lots of noisy crows overhead in the evenings. Tree canopy keeps things pretty dark all day, but we were never cold. Slept really well. Site was fairly level once we figured out how to configure our two tents. LOTS of poison oak but it’s mostly contained in fenced areas between sites. We were able to avoid it fairly easily. Sites are generous but you are pretty close to your neighbors, and the main road is very tight, believe what others have said about it.

Be sure to spend some time at the Visitor Center—it’s a nice one and the folks are very friendly.

Like camping in a dream

Generous campsites nestled amongst giant redwoods…incredible setting to camp in.

About 30 minutes from supplies, restaurants, etc…and it gets dark early thanks to the valley and giant trees…so plan accordingly.

Data service on Verizon was anywhere from no service to able to stream.

Some of the facilities and tables need some TLC, but nothing that dampened our enthusiasm for the campground.

Loved our stay.

Redwood solitude

Lovely out-of-the-way campground located at the end of a twisting one lane road through the redwoods. About half of the campsites are located on a steep forested hill, while the rest are adjacent to a large field of high grass in a valley. On the evening of my visit, many deer could be seen in the field.

Bathrooms are single occupancy. The ADA accessible bathrooms have sinks with high-flow faucets that continue to flow without needing to be held down or repeatedly pressed, while the smaller bathrooms have no sinks. None of the bathrooms offer paper towels or hand dryers, however.

This is the Place to camp

Price and campground make this a must stop. Signs at each campsite tell you what kind of camping it is: tent, RV. Not meant for big rigs and the 5 mile road back is very narrow and windy but the drive is beautiful.

Comfortable and Gorgeous!

(3/23/21) Burlington Campground is a wonderful place if you're looking for a relaxing, comfortable forest retreat. Although I don't have any, I think this would be a great place to bring kids who you're hoping to inspire an outdoors lifestyle. Lots of nice, easy trails around and amenities are kept clean and well stocked. I've camped quite a bit along coastline, close to the water, so I was surprised at how warm the redwoods kept us overnight, despite it being early spring.

I stayed for a brief 2 nights as I was on the road, but I would absolutely love to come back here again for a longer, more intentional stay! Totally recommend - if you do stop here for a night, enjoy your stay!

Family friendly campground beneath the redwoods

I stayed here in late July for three nights with my 6 year old daughter and our 3 friends.  Site 13 was easily large enough for four tent set-ups in separate areas of the site, though none of them were completely level.  There are three kinds of sites in the campground - those backed against the woods or the fence separating the campground from the ranger houses, those in the middle, and those next to the Ave of the Giants.  The ones with the most room and privacy were backed up against the woods/fence, and we were in one of those sites. Each sites has a metal fire barrel (with half grate), a picnic table, and enough room to park two vehicles. Each site also has redwoods growing in them and often large stumps (many with steps cuts into them for climbing).  Water spigots are available about every other site. 

This was a very family friendly campground. My daughter and her friend loved playing among the trees and stumps, and riding her scooter around the loop.  Rangers frequently walked/drove around the campground and a camp host went around every morning to check sites and car tags.  Of the three nights we were here, only one was kinda loud with music and voices, but they went subdued around 11 pm. The only other bother were the three dogs in the adjacent camp that were....  well, dogs (they barked a lot). Road noise was present but not distracting. 

The location was great. You could stroll over to the visitor center (rangers set up on the outside over the weekend) or across the street to the nature trails.  A short drive takes you into Myers Flat or Founders Grove, and you are smack in the middle of the Ave of the Giants. I would have given this campground 5 stars, if it wasn't for the comfort stations (bathrooms).  They had a sewage backup/clog the day we arrived, so we didn;t have showers for the time of our stay. They brought in port-a-potties within hours of the restrooms being closed, but not sinks or soap.  With CV-19, I was not happy about not having a clean restroom facility.  

Despite this, however, I was glad I went.  The area was beautiful and peaceful. We went strolling around the redwoods and swimming in the Eel River (south fork). Would recommend.

Good family campground

Like most of the reviews, the campsites are roomy but little privacy. The bathrooms are clean and showers are nice for people who aren't big into camping. 

There are lots of old redwood stumps to explore and climb on for kids. The Gould nature hike is easy and informative with lots of interesting sites. Walk down to the river for stone skipping, wading fun. Also the river hike on the opposite side of the river was amazing, we didn't run into another hiker, so peaceful. 

Also the rangers there were awesome.  Our car wouldn't start when leaving (due to leaving car doors open).  But the rangers had a battery starter pack. Saved us hours of waiting for AAA.

Good Option Along Avenue of the Giants

I ended up here because the Hidden Springs Campground down the road was closed. The highlight of the Burlington campground is that it's right by the Visitors Center so you have easy access to the wifi, free coffee in the morning, and lots of educational opportunities. In fact, I even had wifi access at my campsite. The campground was almost full when I arrived without a reservation around dinner time mid-September.

The campground and most of the campsites are pretty close to the main Avenue of the Giants road so if you're a light sleeper this may be an issue. The campsites are large and spacious but there isn't much privacy between them as the undergrowth is largely absent. There are showers, flush toilets, plenty of water spigots, and tables and bear lockers in each site. Unfortunately my site was pretty far from the facilities and there didn't seem to be a direct way to access them without going through others' campsites or walking way around on the road.

There are also really wonderful looking hiker-biker sites. The entire area is incredible and if you have time, take a slow drive through the trees. Ask the rangers for good local hikes and take lots of stops along the turnouts. I definitely do not regret taking the Avenue of the Giants rather than the faster 101.

Okay Campground in Stunning Area

Albee Creek is a decent little campground set in a beautiful area of Northern California.

The campground itself is relatively small with not a ton of cover between sites. We camped in spot #25 which was nice because we only had campers on one side of us. There were a lot of ticks in the field next to our site however, so I guess we ended up with more neighbors than if we had camped closer to other people.

The campground had bathrooms and showers, which were both in nice condition.

There are a few trail options right from the campground, which is nice. We ended up doing a 16.5-mile loop from the campground to the summit of Grasshopper Peak. It was a nice hike with about 3,100 feet of elevation gain, mostly on fire roads.

Firewood is for sale at the Ranger Kiosk and you are required to purchase your firewood there or somewhere else close by to prevent transmission of disease. The closest store for firewood and beer (aka camping essentials) was in Myers Flat. Stop on your way north if you can as it’s a 25-minute drive each way.

Great campground near the redwood giants

Albee Creek is a great little campground accessed via a bumpy but beautiful ride through old-growth redwood forest just off the Avenue of the Giants in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. We were towing a teardrop trailer, and though a sign said "trailers and RVs not advised," we and others made it just fine by taking it slow. The campground itself was clean and well-maintained. There are many sites under the redwoods but most there seemed to offer little privacy. We were in site 22, facing the meadow, and had a beautiful view during sunset and sunrise as well as prime stargazing. Personally I found 22 and 23 best in terms of privacy and views, but site 25, though pretty open, backs right up to the meadow itself. The frogs from the creek sing you to sleep, and there were deer that visited the meadow in the evenings. Nice hiking nearby and there's a great day use beach on the Eel River at the California Federation of Women's Clubs Grove. The vibe at the campground was very mellow with lots of families and kids riding bikes/scooters around camp.
